Paper Kunai and Sheath Instructable

Picture of Paper Kunai and Sheath Instructable
I have noticed that many people have been asking for a paper kunai instructable. I happen to know how to make them, so I decided to put my account to use. I'm sorry if you were looking for a throwable kunai, because I've tried many ways to throw this one and have not found any. Maybe I just stink at throwing kunai, I don't know. This kunai is good for holding and twirling on your finger, though. The kunai handle is a bit short for my liking, but I made this kunai late at night and I was way too lazy to fix it. I was already rather far in the kunai making and picture taking process. Oh, and as for the picture quality, I took these pictures with my cell phone. I do not own a digital camera, and like I said, this kunai was made late at night. If there is anything that needs clarifying, do not hesitate to ask. Please understand that this is my first instructable. Thanks, and I wish you all luck making your kunai. -RachelisBored95

You will need:
1. 2 pieces of paper (I used computer paper)
2. Tape (I guess liquid glue would work too, but tape is easier to use)
3. 4 pennies (Optional, for added weight)
4. A pencil (Not exactly necessary, it just helped me to form the handle and the ring)
5. Scissors (If you aren't very good at ripping paper, or want a cleaner looking kunai. I personally just rip my paper.)
i put silver tape on the blade

while folding the paper hamburger (vertical) style, don't make the fold DIRECTLY in the middle, make the fold slightly off center to have a bigger sheath than blade and shave the top of the sheath off. this looks cooler.
ok

cool ive made 5 already and love hitting my bro with them
amen to that. lil bros are da best target, especialy when they get mad. :-P
RachelisBored95 (author)  quesoman4 years ago
On the contrary. Older brothers are the best target. Their reactions are priceless! xD
dito}][{
I know right
I have like 20 of them and it's really funny seeing my little brother not knowing where they are coming from XD
How old is he? 3
 Here's a pic of my ninja weapons, using your special kunai recipe with a couple of modifications 
IMG_1608.JPG
 also a way to make the whole kunai hold together better is to use hot gule where you combining 2 peices or to make the tip heavier and stronger :D
 by filling the tip with glue
this is a great instructable, but it doesn't throw straight :( any suggestions?

maltak4 years ago
 Awesome! Maybe you could find a way to make the tip stronger.
business card?
 I used the sheath as a second layer for the blade and put son cardboard (from a beer box :P) which made the tip heavier and stronger (cut the cardboard to fit in less then half of the blade NOT for the entire blade, so its better balanced) and im painting my kunai black for more realisticness

if u take this, and tape the blade on all sides, take the sheath and tabe it on there, but leave the sides open, u can have enough weight w/out the pennies to throw it like a dart. will make an instructable how to do it, and give u a link on each page how to make urs, kay? is it? HUH? ill find u and steal ur puppy dog and pet it until it likes me best and wont love u anymore if u say no!
k im wwatting
RachelisBored95 (author)  277237735 years ago
A) I don't have a puppy... o_O B) Go ahead, just give me credit for the original kunai! :)
u should keep the pencil in the handle
coolioawesomeness!
Me and a friend at school are making a Paper-Ninja Armory. So far we have about 60 throwing stars, 20 throwing squares, and now, one of these. I plan to make more.
Great instructable. Faved, and rated 5*
Anyone know of any more good paper-ninja weapons?

this thing is awesome

Haha Narutard. Nah jokes...But some naruto people are pretty annoying. Anyway, this seems pretty cool. But been 13 yrs old...Id rather make one out of some wood and sheet/strap steel. Theres probable an ible on metal/wood kunais somewhere...
... Guess what the first result was when i searched "Kunai"? K'nex Kunai Im resisting the urge to pulverise something.
I HATE that, its so annoying. I just wanna kill someone with my new KUNAI.....heh
hahaha i know right?
RachelisBored95 (author)  blugyblug5 years ago
Yea, those tend to appear A LOT. Try searching google, perhaps?
haha ive been trying to make one out of wood

if you want to add weight, try quarters, and duct tape. As for throwing, it think i will make an instrucable one of these days for throwing, i can cut a leaf in half from about 4 feet with a garden trowel (which is what a kunai basicly was) but the thing isnt straight so i cant get accurate with it. but overall, GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!! one of these days i will make one, im feeling to lazy right now
RachelisBored95 (author)  naruto 7775 years ago
Thanks for the feedback! Oh, and in regards to the quarters, I have tried using them before, but if I put them in the same way I put the pennies in, it looks rather awkward(You know, freakish looking bump on the otherwise straight edge of a kunai... xD).
oh..... well thats odd, paper shuriken are getting popular at my school now, and if i introduce this, my algebra class in the portable will be a ninja class for dummies...... lololololololololol XD
RachelisBored95 (author)  naruto 7775 years ago
Tomorrow will be FUN! Planning on making a bunch of shuriken tonight and assaulting my friends with them tomorrow. Hey, could I ask a quick favor?
I was wondering if you(Naruto), or anyone for that matter, could check out this link and post an instructable on how to make it. The instructions on the link are confusing to me.
so youre a girl, who is interested in naruto, even though i kinda figured by your name
RachelisBored95 (author)  naruto 7775 years ago
Yea, pretty much. :P
cool...I havent heard of very many girls who liked Naruto very much.
Hey I've made this origami before! I be you i could make an Instructable if Your still wanting it. just message me on my profile because i really won't be checking this page again. BTW nice tutorial. I managed to throw it pretty good!
HAHAHAHAHAHA I know what you mean...good one.  :D that happend to me not to long ago..heh heh...
Oh, and I'm pretty sure there is a somewhat decent way to throw this one. If you are trying to hit a target 5ft away from you... Eh, in any case, please make one for a throwable kunai. Until you make it, I will just throw shuriken at my friends instead of kunai. Nice instructable for shuriken, by the way! Oddly enough, I learned how to make a kunai before a shuriken... o_O
naruto 7775 years ago
ok, so i made one of these last night, i ran into 1 major problem, when you throw it, it crinlkes at the tip, in other words, the front end crunches, one way im thinking i could fix that is by putting 2 to 3 squewers (i know i cant spell) and that should keep it from crunching, time to test it.
screws?
this thing rocks (I HAVE 3!!!)
(in half an hour).....now I have like 20-30

RachelisBored95 (author)  naruto 7775 years ago
Haha, good job! :)
well for the most part anyway, hit my bro with it a few times he said it hurt, that is when it hit him. *slaps head* should work on throwing tecneiques.
RachelisBored95 (author)  naruto 7775 years ago
